I will say this their prices at The Unlimited have gotten way out of hand, I have a mirror I bought from Wal-Mart for $8.00 they have the exact mirror at the Unlimited used for $10.00 right now they have a maybe $200-$250. value bed at any yard sale in there for $1,100.00 no lie and I even have always donated my items to them but after a recent trip and seeing prices at 4 to 5 times higher than they were before the remodel a $1600.00 table and chair set and that's with 20% off I seen a woman ask about a dirty filthy doll they had marked $20.00 and the lady showed her were the doll was $16.00 new at Target with her phone and asked the lady if she would take less and they told her NO, trying to trap someone into thinking its a valuable doll because of its shape. They used to have new items all the time but for the last few months its the same things only marked down and some at half which is still more than it would be if you went and bought it brand new. I have Never ever went in and seen them gathering up clothing or household items for a burnout (someone who lost everything) but I have at other charity stores where all items are donated. I do realize they have paychecks to pay and light bills ect but someone in the chain of money is def stuffing some big bucks off in their pockets even if it may be the owners. I wonder if the really nice items donated if the people who donated them even have a clue the ridiculous prices Abilities is pricing the stuff for and if they realize they do Not help the community other than provide jobs and every business is supplying jobs so it shouldn't make them any different. I will no longer shop or donate there until someone does something about their pricing!

While I agree that the store charges too much for items they sell, please take in to account that they do help people with disabilities. The majority of the employees can not get jobs anywhere else. Your donations and purchases ensure that these people can get paid for working rather that being on welfare. Wouldn't you rather people get paid for doing an honest days work rather that being on welfare? This organization does a great service to this community. My son works there and let me tell you I am very grateful to them.

My son has disabilities and he works there. FYI they do not make 10 to 15 an hour. He makes minimum wage. If you don't buy used stuff, then what were you doing there? Making fun of people? Get the facts before you run your mouth.
